Financial Aid

Tuition Assistance

Over $800,000 in tuition assistance is awarded to students each year based on need.  Rice uses a third party, FACTS, to evaluate eligibility in order to administer financial aid objectively and with consistency.  Many factors are considered when evaluating financial need including income, size of family, assets/liabilities, and living expenses.  Applicants are notified by mid-April of the award decision.

Students enrolling for the 2018-19 academic year and requesting tuition assistance must submit a completed FACTS financial aid application with a $30 application.  Commonly asked questions about the financial aid application process can be answered here.  Otherwise, contact Andy Bond in the Rice Finance office at (802) 862-6521 ext. 206 or
